Nineteen ran in the Christmas mile handicap, which may not sound like many, but it was a rainy night and thunderstorms were possible. Thanks to excellent helpers Wally Phillips, Anne Gardiner and Greg Constantine. Alexander Sinclair aged 8 won - improving by 1:23. Other than Alexander, 5 improved and won prizes. Josh Phillips and Lachlan Cooper both improved and ran the exact same time of 4:40, smashing the course record held jointly by Taiki Nakaya and Luke Gorman of 4:47. Tessa won best dressed, and you can see why in the pictures below.
